What's in the Queue


This is something I started last weekend.

I'm participating with a group on IG that are 
making this Tone It Down 2017 

Since I always wanted to make it...
I thought I would join a group to keep me motivated.


I have five done... and as daunting as they seem...
with 97 pieces in each block... 

they are addicting!

I don't even want to chain piece. 
I like watching each one unfold; 
much like turning from caterpillar 
to butterfly!

But even though I started a new project,
I was able to finish a project!


This was made from the Lella Boutique
Do Si Doe pattern.
using the Minick and Simpson
winter fabric group.
(with an addition of a couple of other fabrics)

But I am already looking forward to making a...
coincidentally,
a Minick and Simpson, new pattern...


On the Plus Side!

I saw this photo on Instagram...
and I had to jump at it!

I gathered up my reds and an assortment of backgrounds
but that's where I will remain until
I get some more of the Tone It Down 2017 blocks finished.



In the mail this week I 
found a package with Sherri Falls' new
book:
Tablerunner Bliss!
It is way too cute!
Lots of quick table runners to make...
or even change up a little to make a small wall hanging...
or even a pillow or two! 
I am super excited about this book! 
I don't really have any table runners... so it's perfect for that too!

Have a good weekend!
